Bradley Walsh 'thrilled' to be Doctor Who's new assistant as line-up revealed

Whittaker calls her new friends "the dream team", while Walsh has spoken about his long-held admiration for the show.

"I remember watching William Hartnell as the First Doctor".

"Black and white made it very scary for a youngster".

'I was petrified but even though I'd watch most of it from behind the sofa through my fingers, I became a fan.

Mandip Gill says: "I am over the moon to be joining the Doctor Who family". This is an iconic show with an awesome fan base and I look forward to everything that brings. To be working alongside the likes of Jodie, Bradley and my old friend Tosin is thrilling.

Cole was simple in remarks, claiming to be "grateful and excited to be a part of this journey with the team".

The TARDIS will get pretty crowded really soon.

As had been widely rumoured, Jodie Whittaker will be joined by Bradley Walsh in the TARDIS for the new run of the show.
